May: UK Must Stick Together

There is no economic case for breaking up the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May said in a speech attacking Scottish nationalists for being “obsessed” with independence. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has repeatedly said she could push for a new referendum if the country is forced into a break with the bloc, Reuters reported on Friday. “The economic case for the union has never been stronger,” May told her Conservative Party’s Scottish conference in Glasgow.  The SNP’s threats to the Westminster government have been ignored in recent months, as London says that Edinburgh has no prerogative to vote out of the United Kingdom for a second time.
